16 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

The P1340 is one of the cheaper to run data projectors of this spec and age that we have looked at for 1 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 1 year running cost of the P1340 is only £81.

Good Brand

Acer is one of the better rated projector manufacturers according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all multimedia projectors.

Supports 3D Image Projection

The Acer P1340 supports 3D image projection. Most of the other data projectors of a comparable type and age to the P1340 do not support 3D image projection.

It may also be worth considering one of the other data projectors which support 3D image projection currently available including the NEC NP-M311W which has better reviews.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Acer P1340 has a built-in speaker. Most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that are a comparable age to the P1340 also have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1200 (WUXGA) Graphics Resolution

The Acer P1340 supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA). That's 20% more resolution than a 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) projector, which is the most common resolution supported by projectors of this spec and age. 1600 x 1200 (UXGA) is also supported by this Acer projector. In addition, this Acer data projector support graphics resolutions of 1024 x 768 (XGA), 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), 1280 x 768 (WXGA), 1280 x 800 (WXGA), 1400 x 1050 (SXGA+), 1440 x 900 (WXGA+), 1680 x 1050 (WSXGA+), 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080) and 640 x 480 (VGA) and 800 x 600 (SVGA).

A 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) graphics resolution is actually the best supported resolution amongst all multimedia projectors that were released around the same time as the P1340.

Amongst comparable types of multimedia projector the worst supported resolution is 640 x 480 (VGA).

1920 X 1200 Pixels Maximum Analog Resolution

This data projector has a maximum analog resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, which is the most frequently found maximum analog resolution on similar spec projectors that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Matrix Size

Projectors of this type and age have matrix sizes of between 0.55" and 0.75", and the average matrix size is 0.61". With a matrix size of 0.65 inches, the Acer P1340 has a very big matrix size compared to most of the other projectors of a comparable spec and age to the P1340.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Number of Colours

With a number of colours of 1,070 million, the Acer P1340 has one of the higher numbers of colours amongst 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors of this age. The lowest number of colours of similar spec projectors that were launched more than two years ago is 1M and the highest is 1,100M.

Chart Edit

Very Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of similar spec data projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the P1340 is 35dB, and the noise levels range from 26dB to 45dB. With a noise level of only 30 decibels, the Acer P1340 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst projectors of this age.

Other projectors with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the NEC UM280 (£359.90) (28dB).

Fairly Long Lamp Service Life

The shortest lamp service life of comparable spec projectors that have been available for more than two years is 1,500h and the longest is 30,000h. The Acer P1340 has a quite long lamp service life (5,000 hours) compared to most of the other similar spec projectors that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

1920 X 1080 Pixels Maximum Digital Resolution

The biggest maximum digital resolution of the Acer P1340 is 1920 x 1080 pixels. That's 8% more maximum digital resolution than the most common maximum digital resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels.

A 1920 x 1080 pixels maximum digital resolution is in fact the best maximum digital resolution across all similar spec multimedia projectors that have been available for more than two years.

The worst maximum digital resolution across comparable types of multimedia projector is 1600 x 1200 pixels.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Support Full HD Projection

Most multimedia projectors that came out more than two years ago do not support Full HD projection. The Acer P1340 is no exception to this as it too does not support Full HD projection.

We compared all the other multimedia projectors which also support Full HD projection to this multimedia projector and we think the Epson 475Wi (£1,632.80), or the Hitachi CP-WX8255A which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Very Low RMS Rated Power

With an RMS rated power of only 2 Watts, the Acer P1340 has a quite low RMS rated power compared to most of the other 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that were launched more than two years ago. The lowest RMS rated power of 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the P1340 is 0.5W, the highest is 20W, and the average RMS rated power is 11W.

Chart Edit

Very Small Optical Zoom

Across all the 3000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been on the market for more than two years the optical zooms range from 1x to 2x. At only 1.1 times zoom factor, the Acer P1340 has a fairly small optical zoom compared to most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

2 Other reasons to consider the Acer P1340

Released Over Three Years Ago

This 3000:1 contrast ratio projector was released over three years ago.

Average Projector Brightness

At 2,700 ANSI lumens, the Acer P1340 has a fairly typical projector brightness compared to most of the other projectors of this type and age.

If this data projector projector brightness is too dim for you then you might also want to look at the NEC NP-VE281X (2,800 ANSI lumens), or the Epson V11H475020 (2,800 ANSI lumens) which also has a higher rating.
